Roof and fixture leaks, inefficient glass, outdated appearance—these are just some of the problems you might face if you have an older conservatory. Today’s conservatories are stronger, more efficient, and appeal to modern style preferences. So, if your conservatory was built in the early 80s or late 90s, it might be time for some upgrades. Here’s what you might expect.
Conservatories that are 10-20 years old are known for low energy efficiency. One of the best ways to combat this problem is to replace the glass. Today’s windowpanes are less affected by extreme temperatures, and coatings are available to prevent UV ray damage—a technology that was not available just a decade ago. Upgrading your glass will help to keep your conservatory comfortable year-round while reducing energy waste.
There are many reasons to replace the roof of an old conservatory including drafts, leaks, low efficiency, and an outdated appearance. There are multiple styles to choose from including solid tile or a tile and glass combination. The type of roof you choose depends on your style and function preferences. For example, the combination roof provides the convenience of shade and the appeal of natural lighting.
Updated Frame Style
If the frame of your conservatory is damaged or weakened my many years of use, then it’s time for a replacement. Frames today are made from uPVC. This material is highly durable, does not rot, and requires little to no maintenance.
Conservatory frame design has also evolved over recent decades from blocky glass rooms to seamless home extensions. You also have more color options compared to the traditional white or aluminum offered by older models.
So, when you replace a damaged frame, you’re getting more than an upgrade in durability; you can change the entire look of your conservatory—and your home!
If your conservatory has minor damage and otherwise meets your needs for efficiency and style, then a conservatory repair might be all you need. This can include roof panel replacement, window leak repair, gutter repair, water damage repair, and more.
